UPHA Chapter 18 Spring Riding Clinic



 

It is not too early to be making plans to attend the UPHA Spring Riding Clinic sponsored by Chapter 18, Virginia and West Virginia. This year will mark the 14th year in a row for this very special event and, as in the past, it will be held at the Virginia Horse Center on March 16-18. We are very pleased to feature world champion instructors Jimmy and Helen Robertson. If those dates sound familiar, it is because the clinic will be held the same weekend as the ASHAV convention, so it will be easy to attend both activities!

Private lessons as well as group lessons are offered and you have the option of bringing your own horse to get in some real show ring experience or riding a lesson horse that can be provided. It is an excellent way to brush up for the upcoming show season, work on some problem areas, or just get more riding experience under the expert guidance of Jimmy and Helen. Spectators are welcome too.

You can also rent a booth and sell used equipment or riding clothes at the “Horsey Fleamarket” that will be going on at the same time as the riding clinic. What a great way to sell those items you have lying around the barn and get a little extra cash to boot!


For more information contact Nancy Troutman (540) 384-6909; MWSINC516@aol.com or Smith Lilly at (304) 384-8800. Entries must be made in advance.

Plan to come join in this fun and great learning experience!

The ASHAV Convention is pleased to partner with UPHA Chapter 18 and provide the following activities:

Smith Lilly will be presenting a futurity clinic on the preparation of and showing of a colt on Saturday afternoon. Also Raquel Rochlin, a sport psychology consultant specializing in the mental training of equestrian athletes, will be doing a clinic.
